Sam Pearson

Drawing as much inspiration from HBO’s The Wire as she does from David Ellison’s incomparable post-McCarthy classic Hammy Hamster, Sam’s work is dark, gritty, real, and authentic. Her early films can be categorized either as explorations of the limits of semiotic language, or as documentary materials examining the life and times of relatively unknown radical thinkers. Her new work in NextFest is an animated film concerning a squirrel and a tree.

Although NextFest is the premiere of Sam’s first narrative short film, she has also had an art series hanging at a recent gala fundraiser for the Creative Practices Institute.
